Re: Say Hello To "Impulse" - My New C27
That's not really true. I'd never buy a used main because generally that IS true about them and they must fit much more exactly than headsails as well but people get rid of jibs & spinnakers for a multitude of reasons.
Upgrading a new boat from the "factory" sails, unloading some seldom or never used racing sails, high end racers that automatically rotate their wardrobe each season, sail makers getting rid of new sails the buyer defaulted on, etc.
I've gotten some extremely good deals on used sails - like 10 cents on the dollar for a 50' jib that had only been flown 5 times.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
